The best women’s loafers for year-round style

Posted On By admin

Loafers aren’t a new shoe. In fact, they’re quite old. Originating in the far corners of North America and Norway in the early 19th century as a simple slip-on, loafers have experienced something of a revolution to become what we know today — and it’s one that has stormed every fashion week since we can remember. 

Loafers’ versatility is the reason for the shoes’ enduring appeal. From thick soles to backless designs, and from large toe buckles to chunky heels, there is quite literally a design for everyone, especially with the most coveted fashion designers putting their own spin on the preppy shoe. Luxury labels such as Prada, Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Saint Laurent have finished catwalk looks with a pair of luxe socks and loafers — and if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us. 

A cyclical fashion trend which never seems to go away, loafers are evidently worth an investment. That’s why we’ve found the best styles to shop now, so you can step out in style this season. 

Reiss Charlotte Leather Loafers

Kicking off with a classic, this is the perfect addition to your wardrobe if you’re dipping your toe into the world of loafers for the first time. With a low-stacked heel and chunky sole, wear these statement shoes to work or to meet friends for a guaranteed way to sophisticate your outfit.

Saint Laurent Cream Leather Penny Loafers

Designed in a cream colour, this Saint Laurent loafer is simple but effective, especially when worn casually with a pair of jeans. The low-stacked heel and soft leather means your feet will be comfortable in these all day long. The colour lends itself well to spring and summer fashion styles, too, so we doubt you’ll be putting these away once winter is over.
